Laura Jehl and James Sherer are partners at BakerHostetler whose work focuses on Blockchain and Emerging Technologies.
They discuss how in terms of laws, the technology is still in the “wild west period”.
They also discuss how the most exciting advances will be in the area of “digital identity”, being able to decide exactly which data points about yourself can be shared with companies and institutions.
